Matching Governance to Outcomes
Provision of services by Government can be “directly” provided, outsourced to an external provider or provided jointly. The decision to review current provision will often be based on the need to reduce deficit funding and/or increase the effectiveness of provision. This presentation looks at the inter-relationships of core service provision with “value-added” services and the strengths and weaknesses of various external provider and “direct” or “partnership” options. The existing ”culture” of the organization, the “culture” of the potential external providers (not-for-profit vs commercial) are discussed and financial, social, environmental and governance outcomes addressed.
